                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am not long for these sands it appears.  Got called up.  It has been fun.
15-11-4-15-15-13-13 final stats.  Ad ex in riposte, parry and decise.  Warhammer,
l/vl.  Thought my favorite would be battle axe.  It may take a while to see another
maximum result on top, until then drink, sing and be happy.

                               Morgar

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, MAXIMUM RESULTS, since PUNNY 
AMINALS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see HORUS MANN win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, HORUS MANN beat ANTIVENOM and ANTIVENOM lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Looks like WILLAF has some guts at least, MORGAR the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most-challenged warrior.  GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE challenged WILLAF's Duelmaster 
for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may be getting 
bland, as MORGAR stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  PUNNY AMINALS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like GOLDEN GLADIATORS avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad 
to see GOLD LOCKET and GOLDEN GLADIATORS at The Warty Toad tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over SAD SLACKS.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry 
if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in WILLAF to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Kudos to LP Morgar, a fitting Lord Protector and Duelmaster. -- Midas

Billy Jack -- You must have wanted a gold locket awfully badly. -- Gold Locket

Ripley Byrd -- I was the lucky one in that fight.  Until next time.... -- Golden Gate
Bridge

Anaconda -- You can't squeeze a lot of gold out of gold-plating.  Nice try, but... --
Goldplated

Sad Slacks -- You had to go and kill my old miner, Pan For Gold?  Just because he
lost to you last round and wanted to try again?  The dead Golden Gladiator was a
13-9-10-15(+1)-10-21-7 bonused init/att/def/dec basher who did good damage and had
poor endurance.  He was interesting and he was MINE. -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Morgar -- What a great idea! -- Billy Jack
P.S.  Enough wine and loud songs, and we won't HEAR the arena sands calling.

Our congratulations to Morgar. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

Golden Gate Bridge -- I suppose it isn't to be wondered at.  Top Wall of Steel,
roadbed of steel, pylons of steel, supporting cables of steel... I was out-classed.
I couldn't slash 'em. -- Ripley Byrd

Gold Locket -- You're a silly woman, when you come right down to it.  Not that I
mind, a little silliness in a woman is acceptable, whereas a silly man is pathetic.
Like some I won't mention on my own team. -- Billy Jack

Antivenom -- Tell me you have tourney fights and I need not be so embarrassed by that
loss? -- Horus Mann

Homely Handmedowns -- Really, you need new, softer pantyhose under your armor.  It's
no wonder your temper suffers. -- John Dere

Tricilliad -- Really, I can't let you DO that to my hair.  I owe it to myself, not to
mention my fans and supporters, to keep everything nice.  And you are NOT helping. --
Dee Nile
